A dinner at Zinc Bistro promises your day will have a sweet ending.
The caddy races might be banned this year, but that won't stop thousands of (rowdy) locals and tourists from hitting the green to get in on the action at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Tradition dictates that the event is as much about drinking and partying as it is about golf, particularly on the infamous 16th hole. Which is a large part of the reason it's the best golf event all year.

But alas, the fun has to end sometime. And when it does, you'll probably be looking for a nearby place to sober up and grab a bite. Good news, you have options to appeal to every type of dining experience you could want. Here's our list of the Best Places to Eat and Drink around the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Zinc Bistro

Chef Matt Carter serves upscale French comfort food at Zinc Bistro, located at Kierland Commons, less than two miles from the TPC. If you're seated inside the restaurant, take in the Parisian ambiance of the eatery's contemporary but still authentic design, while the patio offers bistro tables and wicker chairs. There are few bad choices on Carter's menu, which includes duck confit, diver scallops, Hudson Valley duck breast, and quite possibly some of the best French onion soup you've ever tasted. Reservations are recommended, especially for dinner. You can make them online or by calling 480-603-0922.

The Grill at the TPC

If you're not looking to travel far for a bite to eat then The Grill at the TPC is a fitting option for lunch or dinner. The restaurant can be accessed from the golf course as well as through the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess and offers impressive views of the TPC's 18th hole, so you'll be able to keep an eye on the action while you dine. We've been known to take a late morning break here before returning to catch the last of the day's play. The grill's menu features high-end pub cuisine such as braised short ribs, tuna carpacccio, and linguini with Manila clams. The beer list includes some special offerings like Chimay Grande Reserve and La Fin Du Monde.

F-Zipps. You know everyone will end up at Twin Peaks or Tilted Kilt. Not because of the food, but because of the... Twin Peaks.

Just north of the Open is Local Bistro and Soul Cafe. Surprising that these two standouts weren't even mentioned.
